EXCLUSIVE: Star Hairstylist Charles Worthington Shows Us How He Created Samantha Barks' BAFTAs Braids
It looks like the braid trend we saw all over New York Fashion Week has officially made it overseas. We're loving the romantic braided updo that hairstylist Charles Worthington created for Les Misérables actress Samantha Barks at this week's BAFTAs over in London. The celebrity stylist used brand-new products from his Salon At-Home collection, which launches in stores and on Target.com next month.
"Samantha was wearing a very elegant cream Calvin Klein gown with pearls around her neck so we wanted to do an updo that was also elegant, almost regal but with a fresh and modern twist," says Worthington. "We turned the classic updo on its head by loosely braiding the sides and then pulling out strands to give it a relaxed and slightly undone feel."
While you'll have to wait until March to experiment with the products from Charles' new line, you can recreate Samantha Barks' beautiful braided hairstyle at home right now! Below, watch as the stylist and Samantha offers Lucky a 360-degree view of the look and a step-by-step tutorial so you can try it yourself.
